NASHVILLE -- Nashville desperately needs better offensive players for new coach Peter Laviolette, and the Predators believe they took a very small gamble with the chance for a big reward by signing veteran forwards Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy to one-year contracts. Eagles Official Jerseys . General manager David Poile called signing Ribeiro a great opportunity to add a talented, experienced and creative centre Tuesday when he introduced the veteran at a news conference. Ribeiros contract is worth $1.05 million after being bought out of the final three years of a $22 million contract by the Coyotes recently. "He knows hes living day to day," Poile said of Ribeiro. "Hes on a one-year contract." Ribeiro has 202 goals and 454 assists in 865 career regular-season games but had only 16 goals and 31 assists in 80 games for the Coyotes last season after his new deal. Arizona general manager Don Maloney said Ribeiro had "real behavioural issues" they could not tolerate, and that kept Ribeiro available until he and his agent called Poile last week. Ribeiro and his wife even paid for their own airfare, flying to Nashville to spend the past four days in town. The 34-year-old centre said Tuesday that he was separated from his wife during the season and rarely saw his children. Once the season ended, he said he went to work on his personal life and now has his head clear. He and his wife are looking at buying a house in Nashville. "Im really glad I have a chance to come here and to prove to everyone that I can still play, and that I am a good person and that Im committed to my family but to the team too and to do well," Ribeiro said. "And Im glad that I have a chance to do that." Poile said the Predators did their "due diligence" by talking to former teammates, coaches, managers and others. The general manager also talked to Ribeiros wife during their visit to Nashville. That made the Predators comfortable with signing Ribeiro. Roys deal is worth $1 million. He had nine goals and 28 assists in 75 games for the St. Louis Blues last season. He has 177 goals and 315 assists in 666 career regular-season games, but he said in a conference call Tuesday afternoon that he has spent this summer working in Toronto after dealing with knee and shoulder injuries. He hopes to regain the form that saw him score more than 63 points in four straight seasons in Buffalo. "Its been a tough few years bouncing around, and hopefully this is going to be good for me and I know that," said Roy, who has been with Dallas, Vancouver and St. Louis over the past two seasons. Its been a busy off-season for Nashville after missing the playoffs for a second straight year. The Predators not only replaced Barry Trotz with Laviolette, they also swapped a couple players to Pittsburgh for James Neal and signed Olli Jokinen. Roy will help replace centre Mike Fisher, who is out up to six months after rupturing his Achilles tendon this summer. Poile said the Predators could have up to six new forwards once the season starts, which should help a team led in scoring by defenceman and captain Shea Weber last season. "These are significant additions to change the way our team has played," Poile said. Notes: The Predators have signed Viktor Arvidsson, their fourth-round draft selection in June, to a three-year, entry-level contract. Arvidsson, 21, took part in the teams development camp last week, and he ranked ninth with 40 points in the Swedish Hockey League in the 2013-14 season.

They are only thinking about the first one. "Its going to be awesome," Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller said, looking ahead to Game 6 in Montreal on Monday night. "This is the biggest game --the hardest one to win. So, we need to be ready." The Bruins won 4-2 in Game 5 on Saturday night to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and send the Canadiens to the brink of elimination. Game 6 is Monday at the raucous Bell Centre, with Game 7 back in Boston on Wednesday night, if necessary. "We expect that we are going to have to play our best game yet," Bruins forward Jarome Iginla said. "We know that they are going to try to use their crowd, and we are most likely going to need our best game of the series." The Canadiens swept through the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round and won the first game of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Boston. But since then, the Bruins have regained the form that took them to the Stanley Cup finals twice in three seasons. The Bruins took a 1-0 victory on Matt Frasers overtime goal in Game 4, then came home to speed out to a 3-0 lead. Reilly Smith and Iginla scored power-play goals 32 seconds apart early in the second period to help Boston pull away. "They capitalized on a couple opportunities right at the start of the second period, and that was a tough hole to dig out of," Montreal goalie Carey Price said. "Were going to stay positive. The series is not over yet. Were going home, and were going to bring our absolute best." The Canadiens were in the samee position in the first round against Boston in 2011, winning Game 6 at home before losing the seventh game in overtime. Jordan Mailata Jersey. The Bruins went on to win the Stanley Cup. "Some of our guys have done this before," centre David Desharnais said. "Were in front of our fans and we like the way we play at home." Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban said he thinks his team can do it. "We have enough here. We just have to bring it facing elimination," he said. "I still think that we are in a good spot. We are going back home. Thats the barn, its going to be loud. Its going to be full of energy. We are going to be ready to play, thats for sure." Subban has been at the centre of much of the action so far in the series. He scored the winning goal in Game 1 and has four goals and three assists, and on Saturday night he was the victim of an odd controversy. Bruins forward Shawn Thornton was caught by the TV cameras in the final minute spraying water from the bench at Subban, who had the puck. Thornton was fined $2,820.52 by the league on Sunday -- the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement. Bruins coach Claude Julien said he did not approve of Thorntons behaviour and let him know. Thornton said he got caught up in the moment. Subban also said he would like to move on. "I dont need you guys to make it a big deal out of it," he told reporters after the game. "It is one of those irritating things when youre down 4-2. Listen, they beat us. Thats not the reason why we lost. Its just one of those things that frustrates you even more towards the end of the game."
